Does anyone know why this school isn’t ACEN accredited?  For some reason I thought it was. Crap.

I have to fix my mailing address at Orientation.  Someone mentioned earlier the letter that was sent out stated $50 for each scrub set and a $300 fee is due at Orientation...  Do we bring $300 cash to Orientation in addition to scrub money?  Is there anything else the letter says?

Anyone?  Thanks in advance.

@OvercastThe $300 can be paid anytime before the semester starts. The set of scrubs is $45 (pants and shirt). Jacket $30

Is it cash only for the scrubs/sweatshirt?

Do we need to bring anything besides our driver’s license?

Thanks ✌🏼

They accept credit/debit for the scrubs.  They have a little machine they bring. You need to bring your license, current cpr cert. I don’t remember if they offer the flu shot I already had mine so I brought proof of that. You can call hr and ask

They do. At the health clearance I got an additional tb shot & td booster. Just ask the nurse who is doing your clearance.

Congratulations to those who have been accepted to CONAH. I'm a student nurse.

Our school is a tough school but so far it's been worth the lack of sleep and countless hours of studying. I've asked nurses on the unit how are CONAH students are compared to students from other schools who do rotations at LAC+USC and they have said that CONAH students are VERY competent, well prepared, and well rounded. By 1st semester, you're passing out all PO meds (tabs/caps/liquid), doing nebulizers, injections, hanging solutions, do your own charting, doing wound dressings, head to toe assessments, flushing lines, and more. At CONAH, we have a lot more freedom on the floor compared to other schools (comparing info from what I've heard from other RN programs and what they do for 1st semester). CONAH is extremely hands on. My clinical group was encouraged to go with our patient if they go off the floor for procedures like a catheter change and diagnostic testing like ultrasound, CT,  or MRI. You see patients with crazy comorbidities like hypertension, diabetes, renal failure, liver failure, heart disease, COPD (even patients who have ALL those issues). You have homeless patients, patients with "altered mental status", extremely sick patients, very injured patients, etc.

Lectures are from powerpoints and many students record lectures. Tests are 50 questions in 50 mins and are situational questions. 

You are in for one hell of a ride. No doubt, it's going to be hard, you're going to want to cry, anxiety will shoot through the roof, you're going to question "do I really want to do this?" or "am I capable of doing this?"..  YES you can most definitely do it. Mind over matter and you'll need to power through. Learn to lean on your classmates because you'll need them as much as they'll need you. MAKE time to study because your whole life will revolve around nursing school. I've heard our school is quite the boot camp of nursing programs but you will come out a stronger person. 

Feel free to shoot me more questions and once again, congrats on your acceptance

Do you know if most of the students wore clog-type shoes or lace-up type shoes?  Did some have cloth-based shoes (not mesh, but a softer material instead of leather or plastic)?  

 (Slip-Resistant, EVA, etc.)

What exactly is included in this $100 kit we are supposed to order?  I see we are supposed to order a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff and a watch.  I prefer to order these on my own instead of the other kit listed on the "Cindy's Uniforms" sheet.  Is anybody else ordering a Littman cardiology stethoscope (or another type)?  Or an electronic one/blue tooth?  Any suggestions on BP cuffs or anything else?

The school just sent out an email regarding this so I guess disregard.
